The BVI are just a short journey from the USA, but a world away from all the noise of city life. Wake each morning to the beautiful clear blue waters of your anchorage and, after dining alfresco, head off to explore the verdant islands and rich lagoons, or simply lie back on the beach and marvel at the views over your magazines.
Measuring 39.9m/131ft, luxury yacht FAR NIENTE was built in 2014 and is refitted annually by a meticulous Owner with an attention to detail. As a result, she is always in tip-top condition ready to hold a special celebration within her light and homely salon and dining area, or outdoors in the fresh air where the views of Jost Van Dyke, Anegada or the golden sand beaches around Virgin Gorda can’t be beaten.
The sundeck Jacuzzi is an ideal place to take the weight off your feet and savour cocktails made by the dedicated crew, and there are plenty of sunbeds, sun loungers, outdoor seating and TV entertainment to spend all day outside. As night falls, the lighting allows you to continue your social gathering outside, or retreat to the sky lounge where the fireplace adds the ambience.
A whole host of water toys are stored onboard, and the collection includes:
- 2 x Seadoo jet skis
- 2 x Seabob F5s
- 2 x 2-seater kayaks
- 1 x 1-seater kayak
- 2 x paddleboards
- 1 x wakeboard
- 1 x kneeboard
- water skis (adult, child and slalom sets)
- a water slide
- fishing gear
- snorkelling equipment, and
- a towable toy
There is gym equipment on board that includes yoga mats for outdoor exercise, and a beach setup makes for a comfortable day on soft white sands, with toys to entertain while your catch is prepared on the barbeque by the expert onboard chef.
As the day draws to a close, the 10 guests onboard can retire to their sumptuous en-suite cabins, which are comprised of 1 Master suite, 2 VIP staterooms and 2 twin cabins. All cabins are equipped with TV entertainment, which is connected to the Kaleidescape entertainment server which has more than 200 films available.
BVI CHARTER ITINERARY
The BVIs are a favourite luxury yacht charter destination, especially for those looking to escape dull dreary winters and spring downpours. Week-long itineraries take in the best destinations for scenery, outdoor activities, culture, dining and shopping, and below is one example of how you could spend your 2021 spring vacation:
Day 1: Anchor at Hallover’s Bay, Cooper Island. Get acquainted with the crew and settle in while the doctor conducts onboard arrival tests.
Day 2: The yacht is free to move between anchorages, and once a negative test result is delivered, guests can head ashore. Benures Bay on Norman Island has beautiful sunbathing and snorkelling spots, and guests can enjoy a beachside barbeque along with the views.
Day 3: M/Y FAR NIENTE is free to roam to approved anchorages throughout the BVIs, which includes Malone Bay on Virgin Gorda, and Manchioneel Bay on Little Jost Van Dyke. Play on the water toys, walk along the beaches and snorkel amongst colourful fish before a delicious meal on board within the main salon or out under the stars.
Day 4: Visiting more of the approved anchorages, M/Y FAR NIENTE will take guests on board to more stunning locations for water sports, beach games and dinners on the shore. Captain Jason recommends Valley Trunk Bay and/or White Bay off Virgin Gorda.
Day 5: The second test is taken, and Captain Jason recommends Lee Bay off Great Camanoe for an anchorage.
Day 6: M/Y FAR NIENTE is free to cruise throughout the BVIs, and a favourite place to visit is The Baths on Virgin Gorda. Hike the trails in Devil’s Bay National Park and cruise across to Road Town on Tortola for the museums, botanical gardens and other attractions.
